I don't have the Edit / Chords / Search Replace feature in my newly upgraded BIAB for Mac 2019. There's certainly not much info regarding this on the web, nor could I find anything about it on the manual. As far as I could tell based on a google search and some video results that the feature should be available on all new and old versions of BIAB (through 2014). I thought I needed to upgrade my version for it (I had 2014), so I did, I still can't find it. I chatted on the PG Music live help, and the help personnel said they were also not able to find the feature in 2018, and 2019 versions of BIAB for Mac, but was not able to confirm that this feature was not meant to be available for BIAB for Mac 2019.

Based on the fact thatIs there some way to confirm officially that this feature is not yet available for BIAB Mac 2019.

Also, what the heck? I think it should be clear whether the feature is available or not.

What I mean by this is that it seems to be misleading marketing there's no clear indication that the feature is only available on the windows version. From everything I could tell, there was no distinction between the versions regarding this feature.

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!

The "Plug-in" mode development didn't stop there - With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 we introduced the "Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin" which now works DIRECTLY INSIDE YOUR DAW (Cakewalk, Reaper, Pro Tools, PreSonus, etc.). Learn more about this feature here.
